The market first opened on August 1, with just 11 stalls. Last Saturday there were 33, all under the one roof.
The couple got the idea for the venture after setting up their own business which supplied fresh and frozen wheatgrass. They travelled to markets all over the country, realising that Letterkenny also needed one.
The ethos of the market is that traders must sell food and products and that are neither mass produced nor ‘shop bought.’
“A lot of people we know around here are very gifted at what they do, however, they did not have a shop window to showcase their products and had to travel outside Letterkenny to other markets,” “We want to stay away from mass-produced items, all products sold at the market must be handmade and we want to stick with that rule.”
